Mindy Antsey, a teacher with Porter Elementary School, was recently honored with the Charles Pickitt Elementary School Teacher of the Year Award by the Association of Texas Professional Educators (ATPE) during 2019 ATPE Summit held at the Marriott Marquis in Houston.
“ATPE is proud to recognize outstanding educators in Texas,” said Shannon Holmes, Ed.D., ATPE Executive Director. “The educators honored this year were selected because of their dedication to giving our children the highest quality of education and for inspiring the next generation of educators.”
The Charles Pickitt Educator of the Year Awards annually recognizes ATPE members who demonstrate exceptional or innovative capabilities in their respective educational fields. This year’s winners each received a $5,000 prize along with their awards.
Antsey was honored on stage at the 2019 ATPE Summit Awards Luncheon, which saw hundreds of educators gather to celebrate the achievements of public school employees from across Texas. With nearly 100,000 members statewide, ATPE is the largest educators’ association in the state and serves as a major voice for public education.
